The chipless RFID sector is attracting the interest of academics and, more recently, industries as a potential alternative identification technique to the barcode. It allows for non-line-of-sight reading and lower tag realization costs compared to chipped RFID. For the diffusion of barcode technology in the 1970s, the reader performance and cost played a major role.
This book discusses the design of the ultra-wideband (UWB) reader for chipless radiofrequency identification (RFID) technology. This book first explores the state-of-the-art chipless RFID reader, based on the stepped-frequency continuous-wave (SFCW) and the frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW). After proposing the design, the book presents the realization and characterization of different readers based on impulse-radio UWB (IR-UWB) technology which promises a ready compliance with UWB regulations worldwide, a reduced reading time for real-time implementation and a low-cost solution.
